The world is moving forward, and it is commendable to see how technology has brought new features into man’s everyday lives.

Entertainment had never been available more than in our contemporary setting in the first few decades of the 21st century. It has become accessible because people have it from their respective homes at the command of the flick of their switch. Now, we can binge-watch our favorite anime through many platforms, and it's up to our convenience to choose.

It’s also eminent that many of the past technologies are nearing becoming obsolete. One major catalyst in promoting swift advancements, the Internet, is making the cable TV industry face its timely obsolescence. The internet gave rise to IPTVs, OTT, and top-selling streaming devices that we’ve come to know and love.

What is IPTV?

IPTV is one of the TV improvements brought by the internet. The abbreviation IPTV stands for Internet Protocol Television. In Layman’s terms, IPTV allows your screen to receive any televised content from the internet, making this system an internet-dependent service.

IPTV functions by scouring the internet for programs and shows, just like how you quickly browse the available broadcasting transmissions and frequencies. The video requested comes from data packets to transfer on the IPTV set-up.

The huge differences between broadcast TV and IPTV are as follows:

IPTV uses the internet to send televised content to users. Broadcast TV relies on using radio wave frequencies.

There is a choice of what programs and shows to watch and when. You can't find this interactive feature anywhere on cable TV.

IPTV requires a setup that reads the data packet and converts it into media. One promising device is Amazon Firestick.

What is Amazon Firestick?

Firestick is an Amazon streaming product that greatly resembles a flash drive. The device relies heavily on the internet, enabling video playing on the television set through Internet Protocol.

The internet also enables this streaming instrument to offer IPTVs and OTTs to its users. Further, Amazon Firestick can also access video and other files inside the user’s Amazon Cloud Storage (now known as Amazon Drive).

Interactivity is also one of the factors that set apart broadcast TV and internet-based TV. Fire Stick, having an android-based user interface, helps to accentuate that feature.

Installing SIPTV on Firestick

Firestick houses the most popular OTT media, such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and even HBO. Little did everyone know, they could also use the same streaming stick as an immediate IPTV set-up box.

Presented below are the steps for installing Smart IPTV, a compatible IPTV on Firestick:

  • On the “My Fire TV” under settings, click “Developer Option.”
  • Allow installation of applications from unknown sources
  • Go to Home, search and download “Downloader.”
  • Once done, open it and type in the URL
  • Install the application once the Downloader runs SIPTV
  • Delete the apk once you finish installing the app.

Most IPTV issues on the Firestick focus on the unnecessary buffering of videos. Cases like looping issues, screen freezing, and getting stuck on loading are among the video buffers encountered when playing the IPTV. These problems can be annoying to a certain degree on what’s supposed to be a time to relax and be amused.

With that, here are some ways how to make sure IPTV works well on Amazon Firesticks.

Change IPTV Provider

One reason why your video keeps freezing is surprisingly not your fault. Sometimes, the IPTV provider experiences a hefty load of traffic. The heavy traffic means far too many users are connecting to the provider.

The best solution is switching and trying an alternative IPTV provider, indicating whether the provider was the problem.

Improve the Signal of the Wi-Fi

The most prevailing cause for video buffers is Wi-Fi connectivity. These are the solutions for the most common connectivity issues that users run into.

Change the Connection Signal

Most IPTV nowadays runs smoothly on 5.0GHz compared to 2.4GHz. A 2.4GHz can give a low signal output with an extended reach. 5.0GHz gives a stronger signal output but only at a small radius range. Thus, it is advisable to align the Wi-Fi signal settings to the recommended IPTV preference.

Use Wired Connections

Internet connection now exists mostly in wireless form. In this wireless state, it can prove to be convenient by further extending its reach to accommodate the most number of users. But while it is certainly convenient, a wireless internet network also comes with a problem.

Wi-Fi uses radio waves to transfer information, device per device. Many interferences can affect the signal quality, often causing massive fluctuations unsuitable for streaming sessions.

Using an Ethernet cable connection fixes that issue, creating a stable path for the internet connection to pass through. Keep this in mind. However, that wired internet connection has its cons, which are within the advantages of wireless connections.

Bandwidth Consumption

Another factor that makes the video slow has something to do with bandwidth. Bandwidth is how much data is transferred in a given time. Various devices consume more bandwidth than others, and different device activity brings the same consumption effect. Thus, a laptop consumes a larger bandwidth than a phone, more so if it’s a smart TV. Similarly, some applications running the background consume minimal data while playing videos and downloading hogs the most bandwidth. The bandwidth consumption by devices will affect the video you are playing.

Bandwidth Consumption by Other Devices

If your Firestick connects to a Wi-Fi network with a couple of linked devices, chances are, some devices will hog the bandwidth faster than your streaming stick. The worst case is if these devices are downloading or playing videos. The best way to deal with these is by disconnecting other devices or scheduling a watching session that does not contradict other devices.

Bandwidth Consumption by Firestick

Your Firestick’s bandwidth consumption matters too. Many applications and settings in the Firestick run in the background while consuming huge amounts of data the device is supposed to allot to the video playing. As such, it is best to uninstall unnecessary applications and clear data of applications you use only to a minimum.
